Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provider, HiveIO, has unveiled a fully integrated VDI platform that will deploy and run in private or hybrid cloud environments as a DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) solution.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has made it extremely challenging for IT teams to deploy VDI in traditional data centers, to enable remote workforces. This new offering is designed from the ground up to enable organizations to roll out “scalable and fast performing VDI”, fully as a service without the implications of racking and stacking servers in a data center.
A joint partnership with Aurora Cloud Technologies, which provides the cloud infrastructure aspect of the solution, and HiveIO’s new capabilities would enable IT teams to “effortlessly” deploy VDI infrastructure with integrated remote access to thousands of desktop users within hours.
“We have the perfect solution for any organization that needs to roll out desktops quickly with a limited IT team that does not have the expertise or the time to deal with complex solutions, without compromising performance,” said Ofer Bezalel, founder and CEO of HiveIO. “Our hybrid cloud DaaS offering, empowered by Aurora Cloud’s services, will give our customers the flexibility to deploy VDI faster without the need to procure hardware providing the base structure to assist them to make the fundamental shift to a virtual economy.”
COVID-19 – 90 Days for Free
The product announcement builds on HiveIO’s single-install VDI platform technology. Organizations can now run the platform in a private or hybrid cloud environment, shortening the process of deploying thousands of desktops, in record time, with the same efficiency, performance, and speed that existing HiveIO customers experience.
Traditionally, Hive Fabric, HiveIO’s VDI platform, is deployed in a private data center where customers provide their own hardware. HiveIO became a leading provider of VDI technology when it disrupted the industry with a single-install, easier to use solution, which could run on any x86 computer server. Today, the entire Fabric now becomes available to run in a cloud.
“As a partner of HiveIO, we understand how critical it is to enable a remote workforce, especially given the timing of real-world pressures that exist right now,” said Jim Peragino, CEO of Aurora Cloud Technologies. “We are excited to work together with HiveIO to tackle this global issue. We have the technical know-how to get hybrid clouds and Hive Fabric deployed quickly, and HiveIO provides the very best VDI technology there is, to enable remote workforces without unnecessary complexity.”
As part of their effort to help organizations stem the spread of COVID-19, HiveIO is providing select organizations an unlimited user license of its enterprise VDI software for 90 days, and unlimited licenses for all K-12 and higher education organizations for the rest of the school year.
